The European-built ATR 42 and Canadas Bombardier Q200 (DH2) are both twin-engine turboprops, and are United Express smallest planes used on short-haul regional routes. Configured 2 - aisle - 2, they have a single Economy Class cabin seating less than 50 guests. Seats do not recline and even standard carry-on luggage cant be stowed in overhead bins. Such bags are instead flown in the belly of the plane at no extra charge.

Brazilian Embraer 135/145 jets are a little larger and feature two classes of service, United Economy and United Economy Plus. Plus seats are basically the bulkhead and exit row of the aircraft offering more legroom. They are configured 1 - aisle - 2 and accommodate between 37-50 passengers. In contrast, Embraer 170/175 models offer three cabin classes, adding 6-12 United First Class seats to the front of the plane. Both models have Wi-Fi capability throughout the aircraft and a capacity for 70-76 total passengers.

The Bombardier CRJ 200 is United smallest jet aircraft, offering guests 13 rows of seating with a 2 - aisle - 2 layout.

The Bombardier CRJ 700 is a larger version with a defined 6-seat United First cabin, 16 Economy Plus seats and 48 seats in Economy Class. Like the Q200, standard-size carry-on bags dont fit overhead bins and must be stored below at no charge.
